Here's a video of me, or let's say my hands, drawing the poster of 'The Queen'. Being filmed while drawing is strange, I don't know if I'll do it again ... Anyway, here's the final state :
And there the video :

Thank you, GlitteringTiaras .

Here's a drawing of Prince William's baptism :


I'm very critical on this one. I don't really like how it came out and the shading is so weird.

That piece looks like it would be hard to draw--there is a lot going on in it. I think you did it beautifully, and that you captured the Queen Mother quite well! I always love seeing her--but, in all honesty, TheTruth--you just cannot top the sketch of Diana and her brother. It is still my favorite piece!

But, that made me think--there is a photo portrait of Charles and Diana and the boys outside with a picnic lunch; Charles is in riding gear and Diana is sitting on a bench---it would make a wonderful sketch--let me see if I can find it.

Oh, I know this picture. I can try to work on it . Although, if you have the same but in a larger version, that would be helpful .

Great work. Congratulations! How long did it take you to finish the picture? Didn't you stop to relax while you were drawing?

Thanks Guido. I can't remember really how long it took me ... I'd say around 3-4 hours. And yes, I stopped a few times to save the footage on the computer .

Lots of talented people here!

Well this isn't exactly a member (though i bet we would have loved to have Queen Victoria join us on the Royal forums - we were a bit after her time)

Queen Victoria was an amateur artist and she did some portraits of herself and her family members.

Here is a self portrait of Victoria at age of 25.

And here is a portrait of her great love and husband, Prince Albert.

Queen Victoria was also a budding landscape painter. Here is her painting of twilight.

Notice that she probably didn't paint from photographs but from actual people and scenes so it was much harder.

We have some truly talented people on here! And this is from a person who came out of Art I with a low B grade.

Those pictures of William and Harry were absolutely stunning! They look exactly like them. Nice work!

Well done, didka mj, thank you for posting your work. The fourth portrait, in your last post, of William is simply beautiful. I wish I could draw... but I do a mean stick figure.

This is a quick sketch showing two hats worn by Diana. I'll complete it with some informations on the side of each portrait.
